Why did you make this work:
After several unsuccessful attempts to find mushrooms, I started to hate this activity. But I'm sure that failure shouldn't stop us from searching and trying. With this ironic illustration I wanted to tell that there are many possibilities around us, all we need is right view of the world.

How was the illustration used:
Personal work

How did you make this work:
